Abstract

The growth hormone response to 10 mg intravenous metoclopramide (MCP) ('Maxolon'-Beecham Laboratories) was determined in ten hypogonadal adult males. All the subjects responded with a peak growth hormone level > 14 mU/l within 1 hour of administration of MCP. Seven normal adult males did not respond to MCP administration. It is concluded that MCP stimulation may be a useful test for both prolactin and growth hormone reverse in hypogonadal males.
